CUTE LEPERS - SMART ACCESSORIES - NEW ALBUM OUT TODAY

“Smart Accessories” is the second album from Seattle’s Cute Lepers who, as I’m sure you know, are a six/sometimes seven-piece band from Seattle, WA equally influenced by first wave punk, mod-revival, power pop, with the spirit of Johnny Thunders…together with occasional hints of doo-wop, early 60′s rock ‘n’ roll and a load of female back-up vocals. Led by chief songwriter Steve E. Nix & Kicks (yes that’s Steve E. Nix & Kicks from seminal Seattle band The Briefs!). It’s on FOUR different colour vinyls, RED, WHITE, GREEN & GREY, plus CD and Digital too. Catch them on tour right now all over Euroland and they’ll be heading back to the UK in the spring. Also lookout for a 7″ in late Feb 2010...

SINGING LOINS - NEW ALBUM COMING IN JULY

The Singing Loins are back with their tenth album, ‘UNRAVELLING ENGLAND’ proving that genius is nothing more than gritted teeth and enduring patience. It features 12 brand new songs recorded as demos over a period of 18 months on a mate’s cheap digital machine. It was soon apparent that the energy and imperfection they’d captured should be released as it stood. We think it’s their best yet and we’re also taking a (ahem…digital) single from the album which will be a 4 track affair with ‘Please Take My Scissors Away’ and ‘Everywhere’ from the new album plus a couple of older tracks. Release date is 20th July and it’s catalogue number is DAMGOOD337CD...

Holly Golightly re-issues

Available from Monday onwards we have 3 great Holly Golightly albums for you. All 3 were originally released on Sympathy For The Record Industry and have been unavailable for some time. Head over to our online shop to order your copies. Painted On CD/LP This is a reissue of Holly Golightly’s third proper album which was originally released in 1997 on the Sympathy label in the USA, now finally available on digipak CD and 12” LP vinyl. ‘Painted On’ is one of Holly’s favourite albums and it features some of her regular live favourites including ‘A Length Of Pipe’ and ‘I Let My Daddy Do That’ which she now plays along with Lawyer Dave in her current incarnation as Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs. Up The Empire CD/LP This is a reissue of Holly Golightly’s first ever live album which was originally released in 1998 on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label in the USA, now finally available on Digipak CD and 12” LP vinyl once again. ‘Up The Empire’ was Holly’s first live albums and it features thirteen tracks that was apparently recorded in the summer of 1997 at Bridgetown’s premier nightspot, The Empire Ballroom and features some of her regular live favourites she’s still playing today including ‘Won’t Go Out’ and ‘You Ain’t No Big Thing Baby’. Down Gina’s At 3 CD/2LP ‘Come on in, put your cigarettes out and have a dance’ kicks off this reissue of Holly Golightly’s second live album which was originally released in 2004 on CD only on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label in the USA, now finally available on a double 12” LP vinyl for the first time and dusted down for a Digipak CD. ‘Down Gina’s At 3’ was recorded at the start of their US tour in 2004 and released by the end of it! This is pretty much the line-up which recorded Holly’s classic ‘Truly She Is None Other’ album and features are Bruce Brand on Drums, Eric Stein on lead Guitar and Jack Lawrence on Bass. Ko And The Knockouts appear on the encore tracks. Apparently just after the tape had run out there was a final encore and Jack White got up and did a stunning version of Louie Louie with the band. never mind eh!...
